What Is Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice is a term used to describe a situation where a healthcare professional or facility deviates from the expected standard of care, harming a patient as a result. Essentially, it's a breach of the duty of care owed to patients.
What Are Some Examples of Medical Malpractice?
Medical malpractice manifests in different forms. Here are some examples:
- Misdiagnosis or delayed diagnosis
- Surgical errors, such as wrong-site surgery
- Medication errors, including incorrect dosage
- Birth injuries caused by medical negligence
- Failure to obtain informed consent
Please note the incidents above are just examples and not a conclusive list of what counts as malpractice. If you're unsure whether you have a valid case, please contact us right away, and we'll review it for you free.
Who Can I File a Claim With?
If we determine that you may have a valid case and you decide to take legal action, you may be able to hold the following parties liable:
- Individual healthcare providers
- Hospitals or medical facilities
- Pharmaceutical companies (in cases involving defective drugs)
- Medical device manufacturers (for faulty medical devices)
In some cases, you can hold multiple parties liable, but that also depends on whether your attorney has access to powerful legal resources to pursue such a case. The good news is that because we are the nation's largest and most powerful injury firm, our attorneys are never short of resources when fighting for the rights of the injured.
What Damages Can I Recover?
In a typical medical malpractice case, you may be eligible to recover various damages, including but not limited to the following:
- Medical expenses related to the malpractice
- Lost wages due to inability to work
- Pain and suffering endured as a result of the malpractice
- Emotional distress caused by the incident
- Compensation for any long-term disability or disfigurement
Because each case is different, we always recommend reaching out to our team of medical malpractice experts to find out if you have a valid case. Thereafter, if you hire us to represent you, we'll determine the damages you may be entitled to and help you recover them.
